My builder says I don't need an architect



The question you should ask yourselves is would you prefer the builder to choose your construction materials and methods, over an independent professional?


Our input does not stop at planning as there are many statutory and legislative requirements that a building would need to meet. Our main objective is to deliver a building that is compliant, legal and safe.

How much will my building project cost?



Projects can be designed and built to meet a specific financial budget.


As a rule of thumb, a home building work, could cost in the region of £1300 to £2000 per square metre subject to material selection, finishes and fittings. You would also need to add  professional fees and contigency. This could be anywhere in the region of 15% to 20% approximately on top of construction cost. 


At archiflair, we can advise you on cost saving design solutions.
